Game 2 Of Super Regional Suspended Until Monday

Posted: Updated:

The second game of the NCAA Baseball Super Regional between Virginia and Mississippi State has been suspended until Monday at 4pm due to rain.

The tarp was brought out at Davenport Field at about 10pm Sunday night, and the game was postponed a little after 11 o'clock.

UVa is the visiting team in Game Two, which will resume Monday in the middle of the 7th inning, with The Cavaliers trailing 5-3.

The 'Hoos were down 5-1 in the 6th inning, when Nate Irving hit a bases loaded, two out, two RBI double into left field to cut the deficit to two.

The Bulldogs scored five unanswered runs after Brandon Downes hit a solo home run over the left field bleachers in the top of the 2nd inning to stake Virginia to a 1-0 lead.

Senior Scott Silverstein surrendered five runs on seven hits in 3.1 innings for UVa.

Head coach Brian O'Connor brought closer Kyle Crockett on in relief in the 4th, and the junior has pitched 2.2 innings, giving up just one hit.

A win by Mississippi State Monday would send the Bulldogs to the College World Series.

If Virginia wins, they will play Game Three 55 minutes after the conclusion of Game Two.
